At Construction Materials Testing in Houston, Texas, we provide vital material testing to the building and construction industry. As well as the onsite testing we perform, we also offer a wide variety of more comprehensive tests from our fully accredited, state-of-the-art material testing lab.
Where materials cannot be fully and compressively tested on-site, they are taken to the lab and submitted to numerous, in-depth assessments and tests to ensure there are no issues and to report back to our clients exactly what is in the materials.
What is a Material Testing Laboratory?
A material testing lab is a facility used for testing construction materials off-site. It is normally used to cover the full scope of testing that is not possible to complete onsite.
AASHTO Accredited and A2LA Certified Labs
The labs we use for material testing here at CMT are fully accredited and certified by important non-profit and industry-recognized bodies. This includes AASHTO and A2LA.
What does it mean and why is it important?
A2LA Certified Labs are those that have been certified by ASLA, a non-governmental and non-profit, public service and membership-based society that operates to meet the needs of the owners of a material testing lab, like CMT, and the users. This certification ensures that the laboratories provide a competent and accurate level of testing and accurate data.
AASHTO Certified Labs are those that have been certified through the AAP or AASHTO Accreditation Program to assess their competency in performing certain tests on construction materials. Not only is it the biggest accrediting body of its kind in the construction materials sector, but it is also the most widely accepted too.
